This vintage cat planter or pencil holder was made in Occupied Japan. It is sweet in pose and sweetly decorated with posies and blue bow and ears. It is one of two identical I have except the other is decorated in pink. It is marked on the bottom Made in Occupied Japan with 5 horseshoe shaped lines. The piece is 5 inches tall and in excellent condition. Absolutely no damage of any kind. I have owned the pair since the late 1960s but they would date between 1945 and 1952. This listing is for one only but if you wanted both you would only pay shipping for one in North America.
